I no longer manage bookings for Abbey House Cottage, if you’re interested in booking please contact me and I’ll pass on the owners details. 

Abbey House Cottage has just undergone extensive refurbishment, the owner has an amazing eye for detail so everything has been finished to an incredibly high standard and it has become a luxury, fully equipped self-catering holiday cottage. Abbey House Cottage is in an enviable location overlooking the Buttlands in Wells next Sea. It sleeps 4 in two bedrooms with everything on one level (only two small internal steps) and welcomes dogs at no charge. There is a shared secure courtyard garden and a separate private front garden. Wells next Sea is a lively seaside town with lots on the doorstep to enjoy. Just on the Buttlands alone are two fabulous pubs, the Globe and the Crown but as there’s no through traffic it’s a very tranquil place just minutes from the high street and the quay. 


Originally built as the Doctors Surgery in 1899 Abbey House Cottage has 2 bedrooms sleeping 3-4, there is a master kingsize bedroom and the second is a full-size single day bed with another single underneath that can be made up on request. The second bedroom when being used with two single beds is limited on floor space. There is a family shower room. The eat-in kitchen has a dishwasher, washer/dryer, an electric oven, a clever microwave and a large fridge and separate freezer. There is a dining table which easily seats four. At the front of the property is the sitting room which has two sofas, an electric log burner and there's a flat screen TV. if you would like to borrow a travel cot or a highchair please let me know. 

At the front of the property, there is an enclosed garden with a bench perfect to watch the world go by or have an evening gin and tonic in the sunshine. At the rear there is a large secure courtyard garden which is shared with the owners of Abbey House, they have a wonderfully friendly dog called Hamish. There is a gas bbq for you to use and an outdoor table and chairs to enjoy alfresco dining.

Parking is unrestricted on the roadside. There is no through traffic so the Buttlands is a very quiet area in the middle of the fabulous town, just minutes away from the shops, pubs, restaurants and the sea. 

The cottage welcomes 2 dogs free of charge, but we ask that they stay in the living areas and are not to be allowed on the furniture. They must not be left alone in the cottage at any time. Bowls, dog towels and 'holiday dog' tags are supplied. If you would like to borrow a dog crate just let me know.

Local Area

Wells-next-Sea is an amazing seaside town with something for everyone. There is an annual carnival, a pirate festival and the Christmas tide when Santa floats to the Quayside. There are fabulous ice cream shops, delicious fish and chips, so many pubs and restaurants to enjoy. For the seaside fun, there is an arcade, great crabbing off the quay, the pinewoods and beach with beach huts that Wells is famous for. The Buttlands is a quiet calm garden square, with two great pubs. For more information, please read my blog in the blog section.
